HTC One Android 4.4 KitKat OTA update has finally reached US grounds and it looks like Verizon customers are going to be the one of the first to experience it. There is no word on when the OTA update might hit the LTE networks of AT&T and T-Mobile, but speculations suggest that the release date might not be too far away.
About a week ago, HTC America’s President, Jason Mackenzie, shared it through a press release that the Taiwanese giant is going to miss the deadline they set for themselves back in late 2013 for the HTC One KitKat OTA update on all North American handsets.
Since then, the KitKat goodness has made its way to some lucky HTC One customers in Canada and to only those Sprint users who ask for it. In simpler words, unless AT&T and T-Mobile magically start rolling out Android 4.4 to the HTC One’s on their networks, customers on their network are going to be the last ones to be running Google’s latest OS.
None of the above carriers have posted an official changelog just yet but various reports have now confirmed that apart from all the goodness which Android 4.4.2 KitKat brings with itself, this update has also got some minor improvements in BlinkFeed, gallery and the camera app. Some HTC One users have also reported minor bump in performance and power management, though we have no benchmarks to back that up.
Verizon and Sprint HTC One owners who have update their handsets to KitKat, we would love to hear what changes have you experienced on your devices after updating. AT&T and T-Mobile customers, when do you think the update will the OTA update made available for you?
